Let’s Talk About Mental Health

New series promotes mental health practices for Latinos 


Washington, DC – November 29, 2021 – Hispanic Communications Network (HCN) (hcnmedia.com) / La Red Hispana (laredhispana.org), will launch the fifth edition of its Culture of Health series. This year the multimedia series, titled “Let’s Talk about Mental Health” (Hablemos de Salud Mental) will address topics such as mental health and technology among young people, stigmatizing language, and domestic violence, which are more relevant than ever due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in our community.

HCN has developed multimedia ads – radio spots, videos, and articles – with tips aimed at informing and empowering our audience. In addition, La Red Hispana’s renowned experts and hosts  – Dr. Isabel Gómez-Bassols and Dr. Eduardo Lopez Navarro – have developed helpful and practical recommendations available at laredhispana.org/hablemosdesaludmental.

“Mental health continues to be a sensitive and hesitant topic of discussion  among Hispanics.” says Alison Rodden, HCN’s Executive Director. “Hablemos de Salud Mental seeks to facilitate conversations including social determinants that impact Hispanic communities such as cultural stigma, lack of insurance or inadequate insurance, and language barriers, among many others”.

The Cultura de Salud programming series, “Let’s Talk about Mental Health”, with the support of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will run for 14 weeks from late November 2021 until the end of February 2022.
